Live In The Present Moment – Create Your Future Now

live in the present moment

Many people have a good idea of what their desired future should be, and are always getting ready for that future. That’s it, all they ever do is getting ready and before they know it, time runs out and they never get to truly live.

Like them, have you been getting ready to live instead of living right now?

It’s important to wake up to the choices that we all have: the choice of getting ready to live (live in the future) or the choice to live in the present moment. This is a common misunderstanding of goal-setting some times, that we’re so caught up in the goals and plans themselves and that get in the way of our living in the present.

Let’s consider a simple metaphor. You may have an excellent road map of a beautiful place you’re visiting, but you don’t want to stare at the map the whole time. Instead, you want to enjoy the journey and the wonderful experience of the sights and sound of the trip. The purpose of the map is so that you won’t get lost of your position and you know exactly how to get there. This knowledge and confidence of getting there allow you to enjoy the trip of getting there.

So the map is good, the goal-setting is good, the plans are all good, but once you have a look at them, you put them aside so you can live in the present moment. Because if you’re obsessed with the future, you won’t enjoy the present moment. If you’re so obsessed with the destination, you won’t fully experience the journey.

Cultivate Your Curiosity - Get Out Of Your Own Way

In Part 1, I wrote about the nature of those who are curious, and at the end of it I asked “Who are the curious ones? Are you one of them?” That was a trick question. You see, everyone of us was born curious – that was how we learn to see and make sense […]

S.C.O.R.E. Big

Just hours after I published my previous post, S.C.O.R.E. Big In The Second Half – It Ain’t Over Yet! (Part 1), Brazil was humiliated by Germany in the World Cup and the game was as good as over at half-time. How ironic is that! I believe that no match is considered lost in the first […]

Give Yourself Permission…

Developing Toughness To Face Anything

Developing toughness to face anything

There was an experiment done in the past where they grew similar trees under two separate conditions. The first is a simulated, “ideal”, well-protected indoor environment, and the second is the harsh, natural, outdoor environment. Under the first condition, the plants grew fast and tall, but when placed out in the harsh conditions, they could not withstand […]
